In a few days, Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite will be officially available for reservations in the Indian market. It is the first Lite variant of the Galaxy Note series and we believe it deserves to be included in comparison only for this reason. We obviously chose other affordable high-end smartphones in the same price range for this comparison. For power users, we included Realme X2 Pro, while for people in search of innovative features and amazing cameras, we chose the Vivo X30 Pro. Let’s find out who is better through an in-depth specs comparison.

Samsung and Vivo put more effort into the making of the design of Galaxy Note 10 and X30 Pro. They both come with a punch-hole display minimizing the bezels, as well as a better overall look. I personally prefer the Vivo X30 Pro because it is more compact than both its opponents and it has a less invasive camera module on its rear side. But it is a matter of tastes, naturally. Which design do you prefer?
The most advanced display belongs to the Realme X2 Pro. First of all, it is the only device from this trio to feature the HDR10+ technology for better image reproduction especially on streaming platforms such as Netflix and Prime Video. Further, it has a full DCI P3 coverage and a high 90 Hz refresh rate making the viewing experience smoother. The super AMOLED panel even comes with a very high brightness. There is not so much difference between the panels of Vivo X30 Pro and Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite, but the Galaxy Note 10 Lite is the only to support the S Pen, an amazing feature for productivity.
The most powerful hardware belongs to the Realme X2 Pro which boasts a Snapdragon 855 chipset paired with up to 12 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of UFS 3.0 internal storage. But, unlike the Vivo X30 Pro, it lacks 5G connectivity. Vivo X30 Pro has an inferior chipset in terms of performance, but it is a chipset bundled with an integrated 5G modem. Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite is inferior to both Vivo X30 Pro and Realme X2 Pro in terms of hardware, but it is the only to feature a micro SD slot to expand the internal storage. Further, it is the only with Android 10 out of the box.
Vivo X30 Pro has the most interesting and awesome camera setup. It includes a main 64 MP sensor with OSI, a periscope lens with up to 5x optical zoom, an additional telephoto sensor with a 32 MP resolution and an ultrawide 8 MP sensor. Simply incredible. Right after, we got the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite with a 12 MP triple camera including OIIS, 2x optical zoom, and an ultrawide lens. Both Vivo X30 Pro and Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite are high-end camera phones, but Vivo X30 Pro wins. Realme X2 Pro is just a mid-ranger in terms of camera performance, it packs a 64 MP quad camera including a Samsung GW1 sensor with a 64 MP resolution.
The biggest battery belongs to the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite which lasts way more on a single charge. But Realme X2 Pro has the fastest charging technology: it goes from 0 to 100 percent in just 35 minutes.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite will cost €599/$665 globally, Vivo X30 Pro debuted for about €527/$585 in China, and Realme X2 Pro starts from €399/$442 globally. There is not a clear winner of this comparison, it mostly depends on your needs. The S Pen and the bigger battery are the main pros of the Galaxy Note 10 Lite. Vivo X30 Pro offers 5G and better cameras, while Realme X2 Pro comes with a better display and higher-end hardware.
